The project entails an integrated farming project proposed by the Aqua Engineering Limited along the lake shore in the district of Salima. A fish farm will be set up to grow fish in earth ponds adjacent to the lakeshore and some fish will also be grown in cages to be set up in the lake. The earth ponds will be used to produce mainly fingerlings which will be reared in the cages to market size.
Some of the earth ponds will however be used to grow fish to market size to supplement the supply from the cages. Some of the fingerlings will be produced for supply to other fish farmers in the country. A commercial chicken and vegetable production unit will also be set up as part of the fish farm to achieve an integrated model.
The project will be located at Khombedza Village, in Salima District, Central Region of Malawi.
